Needing to park your car around The Tannery? Banks Peninsula Festival can not guarantee any car parking for any of our festival attendees at The Tannery and caution our festival goers to make other arrangements for getting to the bus stop at The Tannery if possible. However, there is carpark on Rutherford Street approximately 4 minutes walk over the bridge across the river beside the Tannery that does not have maximum parking time limits. There are 50 spaces available at this car park.

The streets immediately adjacent to the Tannery all have short time limits and are monitored all weekend, but if you drive a few hundred metres away from the Tannery there is free street parking in the suburban area that is often available for use on weekends.

There will be friendly personnel on hand at The Tannery bus stop and Orton Bradley Park to assist you with bus movements.

ACCOMMODATION

If you feel like an evening on the peninsula might be the ticket you can check out some temporary accommodation from AirBnb!

WHAT TO BRING

WHAT IF IT RAINS?
